We seek therapy for a variety of reasons. We feel confused, overwhelmed, or in emotional pain, sometimes over relationship or work difficulties. We may feel lost or uncertain about ourselves and our connections to others. We may also be in the midst of a life transition or change, and desire the support and space to sort out our needs and feelings. At times we seek therapy out of a need for personal growth and exploration, and a desire to have more connection with our creative process.

Current openings for TELEHEALTH/VIDEO appointments. Anxiety, depression, self doubt, and daily stress can be so pervasive. Does the stress of daily life feel anxiety provoking and overwhelming? Are your job, relationships or friendships feeling stressful? Perhaps feeling stuck or unsettled is becoming a daily reality. It may feel like its getting harder to thrive and telling people “no” feels hard or unmanageable. You may feel like you are alone, isolated and that you can’t talk with the people in your life about these issues. I want to help you figure some of this out, to learn to love and thrive in life again.

There are a number of reasons people choose to seek out therapy: grief and loss, an unexpected crisis, or a difficult life transition just to name a few. But when you are dealing with increased stress or feeling "stuck," it can be even more difficult to manage life's challenges or utilize former ways of coping in an effective way. Whatever your reason for seeking out therapy, my goal is to create a safe, supportive space to explore existential questions, gain a fresh perspective, and build hope that change is possible.

I am currently not accepting new clients! Please check out my colleagues on our website! I believe that counseling is a journey to self-discovery that you are choosing to stop taking alone. Everything you need is already within you; sometimes it just takes a little guidance to really make the changes you want to make in your life. I specialize in working with LGBTQIA+ clients, non-monogamous and kinky adults, sex workers, and those with alternative spiritualities. I am sex-positive and body-positive. I also work with people who have acute diagnoses, and I have experience working with folks who have been involuntarily hospitalized.

*I am not currently taking new clients* Every person's reason for seeking therapy is unique. It takes courage and bravery to acknowledge the areas or seasons of life in which we might need extra support. The therapeutic process can help individuals adapt to new life circumstances and bring about meaningful change. However, therapy is not just for those who have a problem to solve. Sometimes, there is no single reason someone seeks therapy and they are drawn to starting because they have a sense that things could be better.

Working with individuals and families is a collaborative process. I hope to use my many clinical experiences to help guide clients through a path toward more satisfaction in life. Therapy is not a process of simple "change," but rather a process of finding and developing aspects of satisfaction in careers, families, leisure, and relationships that likely exist when we weed through the days' challenges. Through my years as a clinician, I know how to challenge that process. Through my years of teaching, I know when I can simply step aside and admire the strengths that each of us have inside.

School Issues (Academic Underachievement, Academic Counseling) Therapists
Students underachieve in school for a variety of reasons. Motivational problems, ADHD, and learning disabilities can all be a challenge to any parent. Child therapists, child psychologists, or school psychologists in Seattle can help to assess a child's needs and offer much needed help.

Academic counselors in Seattle help with learning issues, child education issues or ADD (attention deficit). They can work with academic underachievers who are quite bright, gifted and intelligent, as well as with children with developmental disabilities (i.e. disabilities students).
